He is learning about income, employers & employees, wages, comparative shopping, and today he was learning about purchasing electricity. He was so excited to learn about reading an electric meter that as soon as his class was over, he went outside with his dad and did indeed read the meter. I can't wait to see his excitement tomorrow. He will be learning about purchasing natural gas and reading gas meters. By the end of the week he will be adjusting recipes!
Happy Birthday Abraham Lincoln!
